Songfacts®:

  • Morgan penned this track from his sixth album, This Ole Boy, with Nashville songsmith Chris Wallin. The former US army man told Yahoo! Music how it show's his sense of adventure: "It was easy to write," he said, "because I'm not the kind of guy that just sits back and watches motorcycles race around the track - everyone knows I race dirt bikes. I talk about jumping out of planes, I can't just watch it happen, I gotta do it."
